Decorating everyday objects

Paper printed with digital images can be used to decorate many kinds of everyday household objects. Objects can be purchased new, gathered from around the house, or bought from garage sales and thrift stores. Images can be printed on sticker paper or on plain paper that you then glue on. Traditional decoupage techniques of cutting, gluing, and varnishing can be used with printed digital images.

Just about anything made of wood, plastic or metal will work, including:

  • candlesticks
  • flower vases
  • lamp bases and shades
  • light switch plates
  • lunch boxes
  • mason jars
  • metal and wooden trays and plates
  • napkin rings
  • picture frames
  • plastic storage bins
  • tissue box covers
  • suitcases
